Cupping Therapy

Almost everyone has seen the iconic circle bruises that result from cupping therapy. From celebrities to professional athletes and the likes of everyone in-between, people are seeking out this age-old therapy of releasing tight muscles and reducing the symptoms of stress. After just one session, you'll know why it's quickly becoming one of the most sought after treatments in the country.

If you are unfamiliar with cupping, let us tell you a little bit more about this fabulous therapy. Cupping is the application of glass or silicone cups to areas of the body that are experiencing tightness in the muscles and fascia. Typically cupping is done on the back, shoulders, hamstrings and calves but it can be done anywhere there is enough flesh to allow the cups to adhere. Most people are used to the downward compression of muscles like you would receive in a massage and cupping is the literally the exact opposite -- the cups are used to lift up on the tissues to assist in loosing up tight muscles, increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

"Thank you so much for introducing me to cupping. I've always loved massage and now I can get both services in one session. The combination really makes a difference in how tight I feel after sitting at a desk all week for work."
